13 July 2016: Keys to transforming assessment at institutional level: selected debates from AHE 2016

This is a joint webinar organised with the Assessment in Higher Education conference secretariat.

A panel of three selected presenters from the International Assessment in Higher Education 2016 professional education seminar (held 30 June) will be discussing the topic of “Transforming Assessment and Feedback in Higher Education on a wider scale: the challenge of change at institutional level“.

Panel Chairs: Sally Jordan, Open University UK, and Prof Sue Bloxham, University of Cumbria.

Panel members and topics (further details PDF):

  • Sally Brown (Leeds Beckett University) & Kay Sambell (Northumbria University): ‘Changing practice on feedback at an institutional level’
  • Amanda Sykes (University of Glasgow) & David Morrison (Plymouth University): ‘Half as Much but Twice as Good: Constructing Effective Written Feedback in Any Subject’
  • Juliet Williams (University of Winchester): ‘Changing colours: what happens when you make enhancement an imperative?’

The central issue being addressed at the day event is that while many assessment innovations and research studies are carried out by individuals within a specific module or programme and we lack sufficient evidence of successful efforts to make wider departmental or institutional change in line with our growing knowledge of good practice in assessment. The on-site day event therefore includes presentation and discussion of initiatives or research projects that address the challenge of establishing wider and more deep-rooted transformation.

This webinar session will take the form of a panel review of key findings from the AHE2016 day event. Further, each panel will contribute to the discussion with a short overview of their presentation on the day followed by questions and discussion between the panel and the webinar participants.
